NEWS/Majida El Roumi In An Unforgettable Concert Closing Dubai Classics

What a brilliant night it was on the 8th of February in Dubai! The Lebanese soprano Majida El Roumi closes the first edition of Dubai Classics music festival after two performances held by the international classical artist Sarah Brightman, who performed days before at the inaugural festival.


The concert was held at the stage of Dubai World Trade Center, an unforgettable night of classical entertainment and chilling vocal performance where the soprano's voice touched the souls of the audiences. One of the famous singers who participated at the concert as fans of Majida El Roumi was the Tunisian prominent and talented singer Latifa, who said after the concert: "Majida El Roumi, you made us happy and you made us cry, how great you are!"


The festival organizers were so excited about this special performance, the director of DXB Live which is the company that organized Dubai Classics, Issam Kazim said: "Given the remarkable popularity of Majida El Roumi as an iconic singer in the Arab World, we cannot express how excited we are to host her on the final night of Dubai Classics music festival." Also Mr. Kazim said about the festival "By hosting two of the strongest voices in the World, Dubai World Trade Center offered the audiences in Dubai a world class weekend of classic soprano talent with contemporary flair." Of course, fans traveled from across the country and the region for this unique experience.


Since her first appearance to the audiences in 1974 in the talent show "Studio El Fan" in Lebanon where she won the top prize, Majida El Roumi made a very respectful music history. Her style of classical, romantic and patriotic songs through years revealed her Excellency in this field. By releasing her latest album and writing many of its songs, Majida El Roumi got not only mid-age fans but also so many young people who appreciated the good music written with golden words with East meets West melodies, especially in these times where many cheap songs are being thrown on the music scene in the Arab World. After 40 years, the beloved Lebanese singer Majida El Roumi celebrated the anniversary of a long fruitful music journey with people who came to watch her in Dubai. Well done for Dubai and the diva Majida El Roumi!
